 The ipython notebook is a way to interact with python (and other supported interpreted languages) inside a web browser. You can mix //cells// with python commands, cells with the output of the python commands (possibly graphics generated by the commands), and text (using some wiki-like rich text format). This interactive web page, aka notebook, can be saved in a ''​my_notebook.ipynb''​ file and re-used later (e.g. the notebook provided in the [[other:​python:​jyp_steps#​part_1|introduction to Python, part 1]]). The ipython notebook is a way to interact with python (and other supported interpreted languages) inside a web browser.
